N.B. This was in 2013. Today the numbers have increased.
This is a series of articles about the size of public transportation fleet in a big city. The fleet may include subway, buses, tramways and in some cases trains and boats
- 16 subway lines (200+ stations) with a total of 5000+ trips per day
- 2 suburban train lines going 30 km from downtown in both directions
- 350+ bus lines
- 4000+ buses
- 3 tramway lines (today 8)
- 1 cable car
- 15800+ stops (bus, subway, tram combined)
And all this is available 20/24 every day (compare to other cities here). Pretty impressive. The open data GTFS file is so big that I didn’t even try to load it in Open Trip Planner. It would take many hours just to load it. And this is one of the peculiarities of GTFS: it the size of the hardware follows closely the size of the data.
